Hello,

I'd hugely appreciate if someone could clarify which documents to send as supporting evidence for a marriage visa.
My husband is British and we currently live in Brazil.

In terms of financial evidence, we intend to show savings in my husband's British bank account. Would a bank statement be enough? Or do we need a signed letter?

In terms of the evidence for accomodation - we intend to go to my mother-in-law's for the first few weeks. Do we need a signed letter by her?

In terms of my current employment - I am self employed, but currently living of my savings. Is it worth it getting into that? I'd like to avoid having bank statements translated if possible. Is it ok to say I'm a stay at home mum?

Thank you very much in advance!

In terms of Accomodation, assume your Mother in Law is owner,you require a Letter from your M-in-Law, a Land Registry Record and or Title Deeds, and Council Tax Bill.

In terms of savings, the required amount needs to be in your account for 6 months minimum (unless acquired via home sale).

You need to show 6 month banks statement and provide evidence as to how savings were obtained.

If you qualify using savings alone, then you do not need to include anything about your employment.

Marriage certifiacate if not UK needs translation. The translation needs notorising. Notorising needs appostille.
I just printed my bank statements and took them to branch for a stamp, but if they were sent by post they dont need stamp.
I first stayed with my dad, he had to show land reg document, morgage and have a surveyor write a brief report concerning space

The following is taken from Appendix Fm-SE

11. In respect of cash savings the following must be provided:
(a) personal bank statements showing that at least the level of cash savings relied upon in the application has been held in an account(s) in the name of the person or of the person and their partner jointly throughout the period of 6 months prior to the date of application.
(b) A declaration by the account holder(s) of the source(s) of the cash savings.
